No problem! Our guppies have no trouble breeding... it's getting them to abstain that's proving to be tricky

Well, she ended up with 9, but one died, so the live total is 8. I still have 1 more female to go who looks double the size of the one that just dropped, so hopefully there aren't too many more!

I've had two platy spawns. They are very. Similar. I've gotta warn you, fry are a lot of work! Haha One gave birth to 22, 19 lived. She is much larger than average. Another gave birth to 14 all of which lived. But the mother died shortly after. Have fun, and good luck!

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

The first one gave birth to 9. And today I looked in the fry net where I moved the other mom to till she gave birth, and she had 16....I have 25 babies!! Thats a little much lol
I called the petstore and they said they'd take the adults back but wouldnt mess with the fry until they were close to full grown. SO I've got 25 babies to take care of for the next few months. Yippee! lol --
I'm kinda excited to see how they turn out though

Mike feeds his extras to the bettas.

World record is 240-something fry in a single drop

Holy crap! 240!?!?!?! WOW thats so many!! I would love to see a pic of that mom!!

I dont have the heart to feed them to my bettas, atleast not yet, if they turn out to be a huge pain then I might have to do that. But my plan for now is to try to raise them so I can take them to the LFS

I don't think that's the momma in the picture, but here's an article about it.

He didn't at first, either, but once he got swamped with a single litter of 27, he started throwing them in there.

Thanks for the article! Had a lot of interesting stuff in it. That's insane though, 244! Lol

I can definitely see why he does that!

Just wanted to update with some pictures of the babies. Have no clue what their dads were, but the first drop is pretty amazing looking, the second look like baby goldfish lol. They were in the fancy tank...so they has some sort of "fancy" dads.


A male from the first drop, females look the same except font have any color other than black grey and white (males have orange caudal and blue dorsal) had 9 of these guys total. 2 females already look pregnant



A bunch from the 2nd drop:: had 25 of these, all their colors are exactly the same so I have to look harder to distinguish male and female
